I second the War Thunder vote! Been spending in ordinate amounts of time with it and have gotten several friends addicted to it as well! Just something about it that seems so much better than the 'World of..'-series. There's just more effort and dedication in the War Thunder team whereas World of Warplanes seems like a stepping stone to something else (or the forgotten middle child). Plus it's drop-dead fucking gorgeous! I have mine cranked and it runs smooth as silk on my HD7850...

Btw, name on WarThunder is 'Lumarra' if anyone wants to hook up sometime...

Not possible. Without 'alien intervention' (See Star Trek: Enterprise, 'Storm Front') or maybe Himmler's 'occultist' meddling (See 'Return to Wolfenstein' ), the Germans had literally no way of getting over there in a unified and effective form. Sure, they heaved the occasional sub over to the coast but despite the slight damage of a few tankers/freighters, there wasn't any lasting, hard impact. They had no strategic bombers, nor did their doctrine include for such things. 'Blitzkrieg' is hard to accomplish when flying to your target and back takes the better part of 24 hours. Granted, with the death of Hitler somewhat early in the war, this may have changed (most likely Himmler would be in charge since Goering was too busy getting high), but I doubt it. Nazi ambitions weren't that lofty, in truth...

Probably because there's an old RTS called Star Trek: New Worlds that would probably give them some trouble...

reports i've read/seen say this is new stuff, that wiener's been spreading himself around anew since the first incident. i just don't understand people like this. there has to be something broken about you to not be faithful to your wife, esp. one you married just a few years previous.

I knew someone was going to make me dig it out of my browser history...grrrrr...

Here!

I'm goin' to bed...

One thing to note (though I doubt this was with deliberate foresite), you can hear the sound of an alien egg opening at the *very* end of Aliens after the credits roll.

Oh, wait, that squishy sound? Yeah, sorry, that's not an alien egg, it was just me licking the popcorn butter off my fingers...

When was the last time you played? In the last six to twelve months they've put in a lot of new stuff like conquerable stations, more sectors, new ships, mobile (Droid) and Linux versions, and major graphics overhauls to certain parts (not to mention major AI/NPC and player ship performance/weapon tweaks). Granted, it's not as 'lively' as Eve, mostly because many gamers don't know about it. I'm hoping that this news spot will help bring new blood in and bolster the numbers some. Once you get into it, it feels a lot like the 'X' series in many ways...

If it's been a while since you were last in, give it another try...

You know it's going to happen...if they have to make money fast with something 'safe', what do you think they're gonna do? Finance a new IP in the hopes it'll be the next big thing or....yeah...

Oooh, if only I could be there to see Kotick squirm! Hope into one hand and shit into the other and see which one fills up first, motherfucker!

Two for two, Blue, as this is another game I follow closely (it's not one of the more 'well-known' space-combat MMO's, so many gamers don't know about it, but should!). This was announced a while ago in their email newsletter, but obviously hadn't been actually put into service until now. If anyone here is interested in a space combat MMO that doesn't require a college degree to get started (I'm looking right at you, EVE) or a serious time sink, then Vendetta is right up your alley! Seriously, we could use some more fresh meat and the game is awesome. Surely worthy of your time until Star Citizen comes along, at least... Thumbsup

Although there are some things I don't get.
1. I cannot actually mine on my own? I.e. I have to get a ship with a mining beam?
2. Is there a way to save the state of the singleplayer world?

1. Yes...it's LIKE Minecraft but it ISN'T Minecraft...lol...yes, you need a ship...

and

2. Yes...just don't ask me how, I just know you can...

Ok, ok, ok...

Can we just agree to dsiagree on this whole Aliens/Aliens3 thing? You guys are running in circles that have been well-worn into the pavement by other geeks years before...you're not going to come up with anything new that makes any difference in the storyline (unless your making a new movie, in which case I'll give you the number to my agent ) and, on top of that, I've only seen ONE person here mention anything about how the DLC retcons the story, which IS official (supposedly). And no one's talking about it. C'mon guys, it's old already. I know, I know...really, I do. But it's a waste of time...there are whole FORUMS set up for this argument alone, and they're well ahead of ya...

I installed A:CM having read all the drama surrounding it ( not to mention that Yahtzee's take on it is fucking hysterical! ) but I still held out hope. I'm one of those that doesn't always see eye to keyboard with the status quo and have loved many games that most found to be wanting. I also thought, btw, that Aliens3 was a good fucking movie, especially considering the dreck that came after it! (I mean, what more did you want? It was cliche'd up the ass, yes, but it had suspense, some action, and the ending was somewhat emotional and made sense...to a point, anyway. It wasn't the blastfest Aliens was, but what third movie in trilogies actually lives up to their namesakes? It was good enough. It could have been much worse!) The huge retcon doesn't bother me so much. I mean, who really cares, eh? So what, if they make it work somehow, fine. I had to practically zip my mouth shut when Spock was yelling 'KHAAAAAAN! this summer, so this ain't nothin' to get your panties in a bunch about. Maybe the DLC will explain it better than the game itself. Who knows. I'm intrigued. I guess that was the point.

But back to the game. It has it's problems. I'll be honest, I haven't played it much beyond the first sitting. I've been meaning to but...well, then I find something else. I haven't updated it yet either, so I don't know if they fixed some of it's faults or not. Seeing how much crap Gearbox has been spewing for Boderlands2 though, I doubt it. A:CM is this years Duke Nukem Forever. But I will finish it! I don't know how long it will take, but it will stay on the ol' hard drive until it's done...

Would you say it's easy to pick up and play like Minecraft? When I look at it, it seems like I wouldn't understand anything. I'd have to read guides endlessly to do the most basic things. You have to read guides in Minecraft too, but it's still very user friendly.

It's pretty user-friendly, about on-par with Minecraft. Obviously, you have to read some to know what to do, but you can just boot it up and start messin' around without any heavy reading. The way you build a ship and then how you mine minerals/ores/whatever will require some reading, but it's not hard and it's pretty easy to remember once you've done it. It's certainly not something you'll have to constantly refer to a manual or strat guide for...

All I can say is try it. There's plenty to do without having to pay for it. It's definitely worth the measly $3 though...

Geezus, had I known you'd put it on the front page, Blue, I'd have told you about it weeks ago! This is kinda old news, my friend. I've been playing this thing for more than a month now. It's got quite a following, including community made Star Trek ships like a Connie and a Klingon D3, all for the taking at www.star-made.org.

If you're looking for something like Minecraft in space, people, THIS is the one! You can land on planets and build stations, including ships and it's heavily dev supported, along with a ton of community support. If you were on the fence with all the Minecraft 'me-toos', this is one to get. Yes, the whole 'blocks' thing is a bit tedious...if not ugly, but it's functional...
